About Us

our philosophy

We at Paws A While have spent our lives in the company of cats and dogs. We are family, divided only by species: they share our homes and our friends, adding to our joy and comforting us in our sorrows. They brighten our days – and we can’t imagine our lives without them. So we give back to them with the best of personalized care, tailored to each one’s unique personality.

A FEW WORDS ABOUT OUR HISTORY

experience is everything

Paws A While offers the best quality care in a clean and stress-free environment – second only to your home. With experienced groomers and vet techs on staff, we’re extra sensitive to your needs, whether you’re the big dog on campus, miniature royalty in training, or anything in-between. And we love cats, too!

testimonials

“The boys love to play at the beach. Which is GREAT, except they love to sleep with us, too. We’ve been taking them to Paws A While once a month for a groom and sometimes a trim. They love the treats!”
- Niki S.
“Being a cat, Moby’s not much of a bather but Christine has a way about her. He smells so much better after a visit to Paws A While!”
